Who doesn't love these rich, chocolate-hazelnut balls? Crunchy bits of hazelnut wafer and buttery ground nuts are bound with Nutella and wrapped around a whole hazelnut for a decadent gift you can make any day.

These are very tasty. I had issues with the melted chocolate but think mine was way too dark since the recipe didn't specify. When I added the Frangelico the chocolate seized up terribly and I had to add coconut oil to smooth it out, but then it didn't harden on the balls unless I put them in the fridge. I would try these again with dark chocolate chips instead of a dark chocolate baking bar. Oh, I also used chocolate wafer cookies because I couldn't find hazelnut. They still tasted great.
